An essential secondary structure in the 3' untranslated region of the mouse hepatitis virus genome.

Abstract

The 3' untranslated regions (3' UTRs) of coronaviruses contain the signals necessary for negative strand RNA synthesis and may also harbor elements essential for positive strand replication and subgenomic RNA transcription. The 3' UTRs of mouse hepatitis virus (MHV) and bovine coronavirus (BCV) are more than 30% divergent. In an effort to learn what parts… (More)
